The message of the Qur’an is addressed to all creation, conveyed in the Arabic language. Allah Almighty says: ‘We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an so that you may understand.’ (12:2) Acquiring command over the Arabic language can be relatively easy for those who are native speakers, but can prove difficult for the non-speakers. The study of Arabic, therefore, cannot be taken lightly.

The books that can impart knowledge of the Qur’anic Arabic are rare. The present book is specifically designed for learning the language of the Qur’an. All examples used in the explanation of Arabic grammar have been taken straight from the Holy Qur’an. This approach aids the beginning -student to enter the world of the Qur’an, allowing simultaneous understanding of Arabic grammar and the Qur’an, which is a very special feature of this book.

Other components that make this book attractive and useful are the simplicity of the language used, and its clarity and effectiveness of expression in achieving its objective. This book can be used by students of different ages whose intention is to learn Arabic with an eye toward proper understanding of the Qur’an.

The author has profound knowledge of both the Arabic and English languages. She also possesses a deep insight into Qur’anic expressions. She studied Arabic in Saudi Arabia and in India. This comprehensive book is the result of her diligence and commitment to learning and teaching the Qur’anic Arabic.

May Allah reward her for this valuable service to the understanding of the Qur’an and make it popular among the students and the academic world at large.

All praise is due to Allaah alone; may He send salutations and exalt the mention of the seal of all Prophets and Messengers, our Prophet Muhammad, his family and all his companions.

It is from the mercy of Allah that He has legislated many deeds through which people can earn great rewards. In this leaflet, we will mention some of the acts which Muslims should exert extra effort in performing in order to increase their account in their record of good deeds.

The first Five Ways to Earn Reward from Allaah:

1. Repentance done sincerely for Allaah: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Allah will forgive the sins of anybody who repents before the sun rises from the west (i.e., a major sign for the Day of Judgment).” (Muslim) He (PBUH) also said: “Allaah accepts the repentance of His slaves until the time of their death (i.e., when the soul is departing).” (Tirmidhi)
2. ‘Umrah during Ramadhaan: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Performing ‘Umrah during it (Ramadhaan) is like performing Hajj with me.” (Bukhaari & Muslim)
3. Recitation of the Qur’aan: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Recite the Qur’aan, for it will intercede for you (with Allaah) on the Day of Judgment.” (Muslim)
4. Learning and teaching the Qur’aan: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “The best amongst you is the one who learns the Qur’aan and teaches it to others.” (Bukhaari)
5. The Mention of Allah: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Shall I not tell you about the best of your deeds, the most pure (i.e., righteous and sincere) of them to your Creator, that which will entitle you to the highest ranks for the sake of Allaah, which is better than fighting your enemies in Jihaad where you kill them or they kill you (i.e., you become martyrs)?” The people replied: “Yes, O Messenger of Allah.” So he (PBUH) said: “The mention of Allaah.” (Tirmidhi) Continue reading
